hey there! here it is 9 days til my grand re-opening and i’m very excited to open my doors again at 10:00 am on friday april 10th! it seems so terribly long since i’ve seen my regulars and am anxious to meet some new friends. i am extremely excited at how the shop is looking, thanks in large part to my friend alisa barnhart for her hard work and creative thinking. alisa will be here at the shop both days so you will get to meet her. for those of you who don’t’ know, friday hours will be 10-6 and saturday 10-2.
at the grand re-opening, refreshments will be available from La Gourmandine Bakery in Lawrenceville, as well as my organic coffee, thai tea, and ginger tea. i will have a basket raffle as well as a guessing contest and gift bags for customers who spend $25 (while supplies last). AND everything in the shop will be 10% off my already low prices. how can you NOT want to be here?? please consider car pooling as parking is limited. there will be additional parking down below the shop in front of my garage and parking along the street is fine too.
after the grand opening, i return to my regular hours:
every 2nd and 4th tuesday 1-6
i know i have odd hours but please bear with me. i have other obligations and interests including my many knitting and felting projects, as well as a 67 acre farm which includes approximately 35 wonderful goats, sheep, and cattle and 30 or so chickens. didn’t bother to count the bees! but i promise that you won’t be disappointed in the wonderful and unusual nature of my shop, including one of kind skeins of handspun yarns from local textile artists as well as international and other locally made items.
i am pleased to be carrying mango moon and malabrigo yarns now and will soon be carrying several more new lines. i met with a wonderful yarn rep yesterday and ordered tons of yarns in hand dye and gradients (my personal favorite) as well as funky new buttons and pins. i was able to secure some Zealana Air which is a blended cashmere & brush tail possum down yarn. so amazingly light and soft. will do my best to at least have a small swatch made up for you to feel.
i don’t want to overwhelm everyone with too many details, so i will keep this newsletter as brief as possible.
suffice it to say, we had a marvelous time at the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival last weekend and look forward to next year at the David L Lawrence Convention Center.
if anyone has any questions about the opening or anything else, contact me via my email or Facebook and i promise to get back to you asap. otherwise hope to see you all very soon and thanks for your patience!
